Grilled Peaches with Greek Yogurt and Balsamic Drizzle Recipe

August 12, 2013 Posted By: Angela Simpson

One thing I commonly hear from friends, family, and clients is that they want to reduce their sugar intake, but still have a raging sweet tooth. This recipe satisfies the need for something dessert-like after a meal, minus all the added sugar and fat of things like cake and ice cream. Instead, it’s naturally sweetened with fresh juicy peaches, which are in their peak season. It’ll even provide you with a nice protein boost, thanks to the Greek yogurt. Enjoy!

Grilled Peaches with Greek Yogurt and Balsamic Drizzle

Ingredients:

2 free-stone peaches, halved and pitted
1 cup fat-free plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
mint leaves, to garnish

Instructions:

1. Oil the grill and preheat it to medium.

2. Mix the Greek yogurt with cinnamon. Divide it between 2 bowls.

3. Slice peaches in half, twisting them apart so that one side contains the pit and the other does not. (You’re going to be using the non-pit sides, but you can still grill the other halves once the pit is out if you like!)

4. Place the peaches, flesh side down, on the grill when it is hot.

5. Allow peaches to cook for about 3 minutes. Gently flip and cook the rounded sides for 2 minutes. Remove and transfer to a plate.

6. In a small saucepan, heat balsamic vinegar until it reduces by about half its original volume. 8. Transfer it to a measuring cup with a spout or another container that will make pouring easy. (If you have a high quality dark balsamic that is already very thick, you can skip this step).

7. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the peaches and yogurt, and garnish with a mint leaf. Serve immediately.
